Focus on the step in front of you, not the whole staircase
July 25th - one step at a time
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.
Martin Luther King
We need to take life one step at a time, one day at time so it doesn’t get too overwhelming. Taken as a whole. it can get pretty scary. There are so many unknowns out there and that’s where faith comes in. One step at a time, we’ll get us there.
If we made it through yesterday, we should make it through today just fine. Taking little steps to doing so makes it all easier to do. Yesterday I took a step, today I’ll take another and before we know it tomorrow will be here. None of knows what tomorrow may bring our way, so we need to enjoy today.
When we focus on the first stair step, we see what today is. It may not be the best there is but even though every day may not be good there is something good to be found in every day. If you don’t take that step you’re not going to find it.
What matters most is knowing the direction you want to head, even if you aren't clear on a specific end point destination. Once you set your direction then you think about moving toward your goals. Some times success is simply putting one foot in front of another and making it through another day.
We can only live life in the present moment and to do that takes feeling good about what we are doing with our time. This hour, this moment. Remember you don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just the next step.
Don’t be afraid to take it.
Be willing to take the first step , no matter how small it is. Concentrate on the fact that you are willing to learn. Absolute miracles will happen.
